Why Do I Need B12?
Vitamin B12 is one of the most important daily nutrients a person can get — an incredibly important water-soluble vitamin essential to:
helping your body release energy from the food you eat; promoting the optimal functionality of your circulatory, immune and central nervous systems; and forming red blood cells, which carry oxygen from your lungs to all parts of your body.
Yet most people, irrespective of dietary preferences, nonetheless still do not get effective and adequate amounts of this critical vitamin.
B12 deficiency is common amongst the general population, but is most prevalent in those subsisting on a vegetarian or entirely plant-based diet. Why? Because B12 is found predominantly in meat and is the one nutrient not found in the plant-kingdom, making it an absolutely essential daily supplement for those favoring a plant-based diet.
How Do I Know if I am B12 Deficient?
The most common symptom of a B12 deficiency is fatigue or weakness. A prolonged deficiency can lead to anemia, nerve damage, depression and mental dysfunction such as memory loss or disorientation.
If you are concerned about your levels of B12, consult your doctor for a simple blood test.
Methylcobalamin is the “active” form of B12 in it’s most potent, absorbable & bio-available incarnation.
The other more typical and inexpensive form of over-the-counter B12 supplement, known as Cyanocobalamin, is a precursor that must first be converted to Methylcobalamin in the liver before it can perform its biochemical job in the brain. But this complex conversion process is inefficient and undermines optimal Methylcobalamin dosing and absorption because only a fraction of useable and bio-available Methylcobalamin is produced from this inefficient physiological transaction. By contrast, the Methylcobalamin form of B12 enters the bloodstream intact, quickly and efficiently so you get maximum benefit.
JAI B12 is offered in spray form only because (according to the Physicians’ Desk Reference for Nonprescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements) oral absorption (spraying into the mouth and swallowing) is far more effective than other forms of delivery (such as capsules, pills, lozenges or drops) in activating the saliva glands and promoting absorption, allowing the vitamin B12 to enter the bloodstream quickly and efficiently, expediting and optimizing cellular availability.
